So Christmas Eve dinner menu 
ideas so far ……….


Seared Scallops with Parmesan & Rocket Risotto and Parmesan crisp

Marinated Duck Breast with a warm salad of Puy Lentils and Bacon

Onion, Shallot and Sage Tarte Tatin

Classic Freshly Opened Cancale Oysters with Shallot Vinegar (oh and maybe a sliver of Sizzling Chorizo)


Beef Wellington with Celeriac Mash and Sugar Roasted Carrots

Caramelised Baked Gammon with Dauphinois Potatoes and Garlic Haricots Vert

Apple & Garlic stuffed Loin of Sanglier (Wild Boar) with Sage & Onion Mash and Roasted Roots

Classic Game Pie with a Flaky Crust sautéed Cabbage with Bacon and Onions


Sticky Toffee Pudding with Pecan Toffee Sauce

Chocolate & Hazelnut Roulade with Cinnamon Cream

Spiced Poached Pears

Cranberry & Orange Tart with Lemon Ice Cream

Of course there will be a suitable amuse bouche, possibly a sorbet and certainly cheese and we can only choose one for each course obviously (shame) but what do you think so far ……..?

Anyone care to vote???
